Vannett was on the field for just three of the Seahawks' 66 offensive snaps Sunday against the Falcons.

The third-round rookie out of Ohio State spent the first five weeks of the season tending to a sprained ankle, but has finally made his professional debut. As expected, he wasn't subject to much game action after being listed as the No. 4 tight end on the team's depth chart. However, behind Jimmy Graham, only the injured Luke Willson (knee) -- who could be looking at an extended absence -- and Brandon Williams serve as impediments to an increased role in the offense.
